Instead of carmels, I used 3 small containers of carmel apple dip ($0.99 each) and it worked great.

Not really a cheesecake, I was hoping for one. If you cut one slice, the rest of the pie fills up the space.

this did not turn out well for me. The cream cheese/chocolate filling had barely any chocolate taste, and mostly an unsweetened cream cheese flavor. And letting it set for only 15 minutes (I actually let it set about 30), and then drizzling the chocolate syrup over the top was a big mistake. Two hours later when I went to get it out of the fridge it appeared that the hot fudge sauce had caused the filling to sort of 'break down' and it was very liquidy and not appetizing. The chocolate crust with the caramel on top was the only good part.

This is a great dessert!!! I am trying to cut fat so I used fat free evaporated Milk, Fat free Cream cheese, Fat free Sour Cream, and fat free milk. IT STILL TASTED GREAT!!!! Thanks!

i added a layer of melted choc chips mixed with whipped cream on top of the crust to add more chocolate to the recipe. also once the caramel is refrigerated, it hardens, making it hard to slice. all around, pretty good. will make again.

What a massive failure. I made this twice in one night, thinking I had done something wrong. The pie never fully sets up, has little to no cheescake flavor. I took the second one to work for a pot luck and no one ate it.

Extremely easy and delicious. The only problem I had was that I used fat free sour cream, lowfat milk and low fat cream didn't hold its shape very well but it was still good.
